What actually is a supper club, we hear you ask! Well, it's a good question - where does a supper club become a restaurant, or stop being a pop-up? Supper clubs are places for people to enjoy fine, high-quality food, without formalities. Many supper clubs are hosted by people in their own houses, so it feels as though you're visiting them for dinner, but you're paying them for the privilege.

Sometimes there are themes, or live music, or comedy. A supper club really can be anything, with many taking the form of pop-up concepts and even underground restaurants. Typically there is no choice when it comes to the menu, and the whole thing has a more relaxed, communal feeling when compared to a restaurant. If you enjoy chatting to new people while out and about then plump for one with long sharing tables that encourage family-style dining, or if you prefer to stick to your own team when eating out go for a smaller affair that has more intimately-sized tables. 

The temporary nature of these spots make it a popular way for aspiring chefs or restaurant-owners to try out their offering before committing to the rent of a plum postcode, a sort of test-run before the main event. As such, you usually can get some pretty amazing food for a fraction of its normal price.  

If sociable supper club dining sounds like your kind of vibe, go ahead and check out our selection of the best supper clubs in London.
